|Mar-15-12|| ||AlanPardew: <When the Cohen gets tough....>|
I posted this to the Pun Submission page only to discover that there are about 2,500 already in the queue...
Cohen outplays Capa in the middle game and could've rounded off a deserved victory with 33...h3 or ...Qf8 but you can't really fault him for missing 35.Bf6+!!
|Apr-18-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Great game!
|Apr-25-12|| ||sevenseaman: Capablanca glides like a ballet dancer; there is grace and aesthetic effect in every move.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||YoungEd: Not to challenge the great Capablanca, but wouldn't 13. xh5 just snatch an easy pawn?|
|Apr-25-12|| ||agb2002: 13.Bxh5 is met with 13... Rh8.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||RookFile: Well, it was a simul, of course. You do get the feeling that he was in a little trouble and had made a couple of errors at some point along the way. Then Capa did what the great players do in trouble - he steered into the wind and outcalculated his opponent.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||HeMateMe: Nice pun, well done, son.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||newzild: A great game, but I think black should have played 19...f5 instead of 19...0-0-0. That k-side pawn front looks pretty imposing.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <newzild> 19...f5! is a good idea, man. |
If 20. d3 0-0-0 and Black is ok.
|Apr-25-12|| ||Check It Out: Capablanca missed the nice little trick 15.Nxd5 exd5 16.e6 with a discovered attack on the black rook.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <Check It Out> Well said! That's an effective tactical shot!|
|Apr-25-12|| ||FSR: Why not 28...dxe4?|
|Apr-25-12|| ||Check It Out: "the tough get Cohen"|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <FSR> I gave your query to Stockfish: It agrees with you that 28...dxe4 was Black's best.|
Here are two lines that it considered for 10 minutes at a depth of 22,
28...dxe4 29. Qe3 Rxh6 30. Rxh6 Rxh6 31. d3 exd3 32. Qxd3+ Kc8 33. Qc4 Nf3 34. Rd1 Qb6 35. Nb5 Kb8 36. Bc3 g4 37. Kb2 Qc6 38. Nd6 g3 39. Nxf5 exf5 40. Qg8+ Kc7 41. Qxg3 Nd4 (-3.79)
28...dxe4 29. Rd1 Kc8 30. Qe3 Ng2 31. Qf2 Nf4 32. Rh2 Rxh6 33. Rdh1 Rxh2 34. Rxh2 Rxh2 35. Qxh2 Kd7 36. Qf2 Qh8 (-4.04)

This Bf6 teaches us humans humility
|Apr-25-12|| ||HeMateMe: < "the tough get Cohen">|
|Apr-25-12|| ||5hrsolver: 35.Bf6+ Sacrifice the bishop to create a flight square for the king and not be forced to exchange rooks. This retains white's rook on the seventh rank where it proved deadly. |
Capablanca saw this already when he played 33.Nd6
|Apr-25-12|| ||kevin86: Why did black resign? He's two rooks ahead!|
|Apr-25-12|| ||Phony Benoni: Any time you're two rooks ahead of Capablanca, you're in real trouble.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||FSR: <LoveThatJoker> Thanks. In other words, Capablanca would have been dead lost if Cohen had played the obvious 28...dxe4.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: <FSR> I'm glad I was able to get back to you on that; for as soon as I read your post, I was interested in the matter. Good job finding 28...dxe4!|
|Apr-25-12|| ||RookFile: <kevin86: Why did black resign? He's two rooks ahead! >|
Other than the fact that it's mate in 3, I can't think of a reason.
|Apr-25-12|| ||bischopper: I allways analyse step to step from opening every move and find out where is the error or mistake on opening, middle game or the finish but this time...well who knows?|
|Apr-25-12|| ||JG27Pyth: 35.Bf6+ is absolutely absurd. The finish is incredible. In the Capablanca was the greatest of all time case-book, this may be exhibit A.|
|Apr-25-12|| ||castledweller: <kevin86: Why did black resign? He's two rooks ahead!>|
Hi kevin - after White checks the Q, Black is forced onto the 8th rank with his K to either a8 or c8, then after Q-c6+ Blacks move will be forced. White will follow-up with Q-c7+, and white will be able to mate on the next move.
